  1. Why don’t BCC repair the potholes instead of renaming the roads , priorities are totally wrong time to wake up and do the right things

  2. for how long shall we be changing names of institutions, roads, ministries, hospitals, towns, cities, villages, rivers, dams, jails, police stations, army barracks…. virtually everything, it creates a lot of confusion to the citizens, especially the old folks, besides history is just but history you cant replace it even if you are full of hatred. we should be worrying our selves about better things. every year we must learn new names… its sickening.

  3. Hail King Mzilikazi!
    The only oversight to be corrected is there is no mention of Mambo. Kudala kwakunganje, umhlaba sewaphenduka, kwakubus’ usu Mambo no Mzilikazi. Either we substitute Mambo with Mugabe way or with this Butcher of Matebeleland Mnangagwa fellow. It’s unity in diversity nation building in Mthwakazi. KwaBulawayo!!

  4. What’s the point in changing street names when there are so much potholes to be fixed let alone that road going to sizinda its abandoned and we should rejoice coz of the street name change for what is the Benefit of changing names
